Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Student will learn ways of gaining control of their video game habitats and have the facts to make better decisions. 
Johnathan holds a Bachelors' Degree in Computer Science during which course he learned how to programme video games and the science behind making the games highly addictive, a requirement of the companies who make money from this 90 billion dollar industry. 

He has worked with children of all ages in the fields of sports, circus skills and business as a trainer and mentor. He has extensive experience of mentoring and counselling which he applies during this class. 

Johnathan has been a martial arts expert since the age of 9. From the age of 16 he worked with various circus teams where he learned many skills. He has travelled the world performing for audiences including Formula 1 events, royalty and international superstars. He is a fully insured fire performer with many skills including bubbleology, staff spinning, juggling and stilt walking, to name but a few. 

As a serial entrepreneur who founded three successful companies before the age of 30, my drive to succeed in life began in my teens when I realised the power of positive motivation. I was lucky enough to have a good mentor who guided me through the intricacies of financial management which helped me to understand the value of money, how to identify and seize opportunities to make money and how to manage an investment portfolio. 

Johnathan also teaches conversational English to children and adults across the world.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please note, this class will highlight to students how much of their lives they are wasting on gaming and the harmful effects this has on their minds, bodies and relationships. Some students can find the realisation that they have a video game addiction problem profoundly distressing.

After this class, please ensure that you speak to your child about what we have covered and be prepared to offer the support they will need to overcome their addiction. You may wish to approach local counselling services to find out what professional support is available to you. 

Please be aware that addiction is a problem, whether it is video games, drugs, alcohol or any other addictive behaviour. If your child identifies that they have a problem during this class please seek professional help immediately.
